Knowing we had early morning arrival, after overnight flight, we had prearranged with hotel management by phone for an early checkin. That message did not make it to the front desk. Reality: Upon arrival, we were...

We return like lemmings to this grand dame of a hotel every January because it offers beauty, old fashioned grace and elegance. Entering the warm and expansive entranceway, we breathe a sigh of thanks and relief. The relaxation we experience at the pool or salon is like no other. The food offerings are varied in both type and setting. We...

The Shelbourne is the best hotel in Dublin. Not only is the location great, the service is outstanding, plus the hotel has a lot of history. The hotel is across the street from St. Stephen's Square, and it's a very nice and popular park in the center of Dublin. Also Grafton Street is a 5-10 minute walk. Check in to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The world famous Shelbourne Hotel is a timeless landmark in the heart of Dublin. Located only 9km from Dublin Airport, The Shelbourne overlooks the magnificent St. Stephen’s Green, and is just seconds from the city’s sights and shops, commerce and culture. But the connection to Ireland’s capital runs far deeper than location. Founded in 1824, The Shelbourne, a Renaissance Hotel is a place where history has been made – the Irish Constitution was drafted, literary masterpieces were penned and society was shaped. Today, as part of the worldwide Renaissance brand, the hotel has been dramatically restored to its full original splendour. Each of the 265 bedrooms are unique, but they all share a sense of charm, style and above all quality…100% Egyptian cotton bedding by Rivolta Carmignani, elegant marble bathrooms with luxury amenities, flat-screen televisions, high speed internet access and climate control. The Shelbourne has 19 beautifully appointed suites, 12 of which are named after famous guests who have stayed at the hotel, such as Princess Grace, John F. Kennedy and Michael Collins and Eamonn De Valera. At the very heart of Dublin’s very best times for almost 200 years, The Shelbourne continues to be the city’s favourite hotel for fine food and drinks in an incomparable environment for generations of Dubliners. The Shelbourne offers a superb choice of dining venues; The Saddle Room, a modern steak and seafood restaurant, The Lord Mayor’s Lounge which serves Dublin’s only true afternoon tea, the renowned Horseshoe Bar and No. 27 Bar & Lounge, the place to see and be seen in Dublin! The hotel features a luxurious Spa offering six treatment rooms, including a suite for two people to share their spa experience together, a manicure and pedicure area as well as an opulent relaxation room. A 17.5m swimming pool, thermal facilities, dance studio and state-of-the-art gymnasium complete the facilities. ... more   less
